Can your dog go to your FI’s now? It is only two weeks so there is no need to create a stink about it especially since the roommate has as much right to have a dog as you do.

It is your job to protect your pet. Your roommates have no obligation to your pet.

@minted:  It doesn’t matter what you told them. They are not obligated to protect your dog or care about your dog. That is your job. Would it be nice if they did, sure. But you can’t control other people and their actions/feelings.

Since they are not breaking any rules and have the right to have a dog, there is nothing you can do about the situation.

You will need to work out the best situation for your dog. Do you have freinds or relatives that can take the dog?

@minted:  You need to stop focusing on them. No amount of complaining about them is going to change the situation. You need to sort out the best possible solution for your pet.

Can you put him in a kennel? They often have sections for animals that cannot be put with the general population. Or can you confine your dog away from the other dog? It is not the best solution but given that it is only 2 weeks and the dog is unwell I am sure it wont have too much of an effect on the dog.

@minted:  it totally sucks that your room mate did not consider your situation before getting a dog. But what exactly do you want her to do now? Give the dog back? I doubt the landlord is going to make concessions for you since you’re leaving in 2 weeks and I’m assuming the room mates are to stay for much longer. He needs to keep them happy if he expects them to pay rent. 

If your FI can’t take the dog yet and you do not have any friends/family perhaps check out ads for pet sitters? Maybe ask people at the rescue if they can reccommend anyone that may be able to help you out? I know it isn’t exactly fair that you have to be the one to make a plan (and obviously spend more money), but I’m not sure what other options you have.

@minted:  Well that sucks 🙁 What about @ms_protea: ‘s suggestion of a pet sitter fro your dog? 

What is your relationship like with your roommates? Would they be open to housing their dog elsewhere for two weeks? Or could you pay for it to stay at a kennel or with a pet sitter? Though I am guessing that they wouldn’t want to do it but you never know.

@minted:  I would tell them what your landlord said and say that under normal circumstances that you wouldn’t have a problem but becuase of your dogs current medical condition this wont work. Try and compromise with them and make them see it from the point of view of if it was their dog.

But at the end of the day I think the landlord will side with your roommates becuase they are staying and you are leaving. So I think you will just have to come up with a solution that involves moving your dog to another location.

Your roommate already has the dog. There isn’t anything you can do about that. Your dog is the one that has the issues, you have to be the one to handle it. If your dog can’t stay with your FI for 2 weeks, what are you going to do when you move in there?
